Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Ted comes to Blu-ray with a perfectly adequate 1.85:1 1080p transfer. This isn't a reference-quality presentation - aliasing and banding definitely pop up now and again - but detail quality is quite impressive, and color accuracy is warm and well-defined, with both saturated hues and flesh tones appearing natural and authentic. Black levels are steady throughout, to boost, and compression artifacting isn't an issue.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix here isn't particularly elegant - music cues are definitely bossier and louder than they need be - but this lossless track preserves the movie's sound design well, nevertheless. Dialogue is always audible, and while surrounds aren't used to extensive effect, when atmospherics and/or music get back there, the effect is engrossing and immersive. Fidelity is dynamic, to boot, and both high- and low-ends are presented nicely.
French and Spanish DTS 5.1 and English DVS Dolby Digital 2.0 sound mixes are included, as are English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
